Dimethyl maleate is synthesized from maleic anhydride and methanol, with sulfuric acid acting as an acid catalyst, through a nucleophilic acyl replacement for the monomethyl ester. It is mainly used in different organic syntheses as a dienophile for diene synthesis. It is also used as an additive and intermediate for plastics, pigments, pharmaceuticals, and agricultural products.
Moreover, dimethyl maleate is also found in various applications where advancements in the hardness and toughness of polymer films are anticipated. This mainly includes the improvement of anti-blocking properties of copolymers of vinyl acetate. Additionally, it is also being used as an internal modifier to increase the glass transition temperature of styrene or vinyl chloride polymers. Increasing application in pharmaceutical industries and agricultural products will drive the growth of the market.
Increasing demand for the products from plastic industries will support the growth of the market. It is also obtained as an intermediate to produce paints, adhesives, and copolymers. Low cost makes it a suitable for its usage in different sectors.
However, strict regulatory rules for the production may hinder the growth of the market.
On the basis of the regional analysis, the market is classified into four major regions such as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and Latin America, Middle East & Africa. North America is predicted to hold major share due to advancements in technologies and favorable economic conditions. The Asia Pacific is predicted to dominate the market due to the increasing use of agricultural products and growing population. Moreover, Europe is estimated to drive the market due to the presence of various pharmaceutical industries and well-developed infrastructure.
The market includes some of the major players such as TCI Chemicals, Shenzhen Junyan, ESIM Chemicals, Shanghai Rich Chemicals and others.
